Pierre Henry - Variations Pour une Porte et un Soupir (1970)

What I just want to say is this: what I'm giving you here is not actual 'music' as we know it. It's not a record by boys who hold guitars, nor does it contain melodies produced by common instruments. Keep that in mind when you listen to this. This is an experimental piece by one of the founders of musique concrète. Present are noisy, cracking doors: sounds that are usually just background noises in our environment. The album title means: Variations for a door and a sigh.

I guess most people know the term musique concrète from the Beatles 'Revolution 9'. That could be a good reference point to decide if you want to hear this. What I know for sure is that it will be a great experience for everyone who hears this, so please give it a chance.
